PENTWATER — Oceana’s Women Who Care (WWC) will wrap up its fifth year of helping area nonprofits when members meet Tuesday, March 7, from 5:30–6:30 p.m. at the Boathouse Bar & Grill, 5164 W. Monroe Road.

At it the groups’s last quarterly meeting in December, members chose to each make $100 personal contributions to The Ladder Community Center in Shelby, totaling $15,000.

With these gifts, the WWC members reached an important milestone as their total personal contributions since June of 2012 surpassed $200,000, benefitting 19 nonprofits serving Oceana residents.

On the first Tuesday of March, June, September and December, the women meet for an hour, learn about three worthy causes serving county residents, and choose one that everyone agrees to support with $100 personal checks. Socializing follows for those who have the time to stay.

Membership, which currently totals 150, is open to any woman who wants to be involved in this unique, joint effort to support Oceana causes.
